Major Issues Related to So-Called Minor Injuries
The Department of Labor & Industries and self-insured employers many times downplay injuries, occupational diseases (such as carpal tunnel), or other damage to your upper extremities resulting from work. They, their so-called independent medical examiners, and their attorneys want to minimize your work-related medical condition to deny you benefits. Our focus is on maximizing your benefits.
Do not take a "do-it-yourself" approach to your workers' comp claim. Far too much is at stake. You need the skilled and compassionate representation we provide to western Washington residents.
The Physical and Legal Challenges You May Face
Carpal tunnel, tendinitis and other upper extremity conditions can result from repetitive work activities. A fractured wrist, shoulder or elbow can have long-term effects on your ability to work. You need an attorney who can summarize the facts of your disability and, based on those facts, push for your benefits under the workers' compensation laws of this state. Knowledge of the law and medical causation issues are paramount to your case.
Protecting Your Rights and Securing Your Future
For over 75 years, we have handled workers' compensation claims for Western Washington residents denied compensation. Workers' compensation is more than filling out a form and collecting a check. The knowledge and experience of a practiced attorney can help you return to your job, start a new career or collect a total disability pension if you are never able to return to work after an on-the-job injury.
